We weighed Luk Chai on Sunday and he’s doubled his birth weight. In only three months, he now tips the scales at 206 kilos.
Luk Chai continues to be spoilt by us keepers. We gave him another new toy this week. It’s a giant two meter-wide red disc which comes up to his knees when he steps in to the middle of it.
Depending on which side of the disc is facing up, he’ll stand on top of it like he’s the king of the paddock or use it as a seasaw. Once he’s finished with those games he just collapses inside his disc and has a nap.
